This is the Marksman, safe and sure, Who still is right, and prays to be so still.
Page 91 - These tasks certainly would not be considered excessively hard, by a Northern laborer; and, in point of fact, the more industrious and active hands finish them often by two o'clock. I saw one or two leaving the field soon after one o'clock, several about two; and between three and four, I met a dozen women and several men coming home to their cabins, having finished their day's work. Under this "Organization of Labor," most of the slaves work rapidly and well.
Page 27 - And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them ... in a moment of time. And the devil said: "All these things will I give thee ... all this power will I give thee, and the glory of them, if thou wilt fall down and worship me: for that it is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.
Page 331 - The clouds are broken in the sky, And thro' the mountain-walls A rolling organ-harmony Swells up, and shakes and falls. Then move the trees, the copses nod, Wings flutter, voices hover clear: "0 just and faithful knight of God! Ride on! the prize is near.
